“Can I Just Move In?”
Reviewed 15 July 2013

Nestled in the gorgeous mountain town of Mentone, Mountain Laurel Inn Bed and Breakfast has all of the comforts of home without any of the hassels that come with being there. From the delicious breakfast to the lovely, hospitable innkeeper Sarah, Mountain Laurel Inn is a great place for any person who wants to get away. The inn is tucked away on the outskirts of town- just within earshot of the Desoto Falls (which are quite active right now!). During the day, we hiked down the trail on Sarah's property that led right to the Falls. We brought our own bikes and took a great ride around the town with just enough hills to make for a fun challenge. While there is no "fitness center," nature provided all we needed for a fun, active time. In the afternoon, we read on the spacious porch and ate dinner at the Wildflower Cafe (another hidden gem). We highly recommend this cozy B&B for anyone who truly wants to take a breather from the business of everyday life.

It's a beautiful setting quite a bit off the beaten path. The rooms are not quite what I expected but they are nice. It's a short walk to Desoto Falls. Sarah is very friendly and knowledgeable about the area. If you want a quiet, peaceful stay away from everything this is the place to go.

My Hubby & I stayed here for 2 nights last year (fall). It's quaint, off the road, quiet (as long as you are the only Guests) The Cabin is divided into 4 rooms & when all are full, there is no privacy.It does have a certain charm, being in the woods. No view at all from Cabin, except woods. If you walk down a meandering path, however, you will enjoy a Great view! We had to stumble upon it ourselves. The room was dingy, dark, & VERY outdated with a small TV mounted on the wall (an old style TV) the management has a "Get Together, Game Cottage though, with a small Video Library (needs updating) & games & publications available for Guests to use. It also had a refridge, with juice & granola bars offered. Back to the Room, Needs updating & freshening up. Dull. The bathroom was ok but had a note taped to toilet, regarding method of flushing. Just get it Fixed!!!
The Breakfast was very nice & well cooked. Probably the best feature of the stay & the Innkeeper was very pleasant.
Economic conditions are tough & in order to compete with other lodging venues in the area, a lot of work needs to be done here. Too expensive for what is offered.

Such a beautiful setting. Wake up to the birds singing and the sound of the magnificent water fall. (Which is a must see) This is a true retreat to peace and quiet. The best breakfast around. And, yes, the French Toast is delish!! My husband just wanted to spend the day on the back porch reading. Mentone is a lovely town full of the most pleasant people. Walk around and enjoy all the little shops and restaurants. A must visit is J Spencer and Miracle Pottery. LOVE!!! We stayed in the "Deer Room".

Thank you Sarah for another great week-end at Mountain Laurel. You know how much we truly love getting away to Mentone. Your place is one of the greatest pleasures we get in traveling. It is so peaceful and everything is just PERFECT. There's nothing that can be said about the place but positive things. The rooms, the food, the location, the genuine friendship and of course Sammie. We love everything about Mountain Laurel Bed and Breakfast. See you soon.

Room Tip: We have stayed in all the rooms and each one is different, but always spotless. We like the rooms on...

The room was cozy and clean. The food was excellent, especially the french toast. My favorite feature was the proximity to DeSoto Falls--a ten minute hike from the room and you're at the overlook.

It's just a short drive into Mentone.

We just spent 2 nights at Mountain Laurel Inn in Mentone, AL. We stayed in the Deer room, it was spotless and comfortable. The owner is so gracious and did I mention the delicious breakfasts? Mountain Laurel is situated in the mountains near Desota State Park. If you are looking for a quiet, relaxing experience with the best food around, this is where you should go.
